Princeton Neuroscience Institute "Inside-out" Seminars

Organizers: Ahmed El Hady and Aaron M. Bornstein

The "Inside-Out" seminars bring professors from professors from other Princeton departments to speak with the PNI community about scholarship that impacts ideas and practices in our field. We are hoping to foster a trans-disciplinary dialogue that enriches our understanding of the societal forces shaping neuroscience and vice-versa.

The first series will feature talks on a range of topics: how neuroscience impacts and interacts with conceptions of race; how "free will" is formulated in quantum mechanics; how implicit biases can be measured in machine learning models of human language use - and what this might mean for how bias is transmitted; and how the metaphors we use to think about the mind and brain have shaped their study in science and medicine.

The four seminars will be held on Thursdays, at 4:30pm, in Princeton Neuroscience Institute Room A32, the time and location regularly reserved for Neuroscience Seminars, and will be followed by a reception with the speakers. The lectures will be video recorded and posted online.
